Our flagship Model No.1 is our fastest bicycle, our lightest bicycle and the bicycle that reviewers have named among the most beautiful ever made.
Iconic curves, athletic handling, and a short wheelbase make Model No.1 a stylish urban road rocket, nimble in traffic and lightning quick on open roads. Perfect for high speed morning commutes and long weekend excursions.
The No.1 twin-tubed single-arc cantilever frame in available titanium weighs just 3.5-pounds and is engineered to absorb road shock while providing lateral stiffness for power and speed. Geometry is aggressive without sacrificing comfort.
Quiet and clean carbon belt drive lasts virtually forever, weighs just 80g, and won’t get your pants dirty. Available Shimano Alfine or Rohloff internal transmission offers your choice of shifting and up to 14-speeds with a massive 526% gear range.
Built by hand with Budnitz titanium riser handlebars, seatpost, stem, badges, and race-quality components from Thomson, Paul Components, and Da Vinci. Your choice of mechanical or hydraulic disc brakes by Formula in Italy.
If you are looking for a city bicycle that is the ideal combination of speed, comfort, and refined aesthetics, choose Model No. 1.
Built to last a lifetime.
“Budnitz bicycles are the smoothest, fastest, and downright coolest bikes on this planet. I’m a daily commuter, round trip to the office is 25 miles. I don’t ride – I fly.”
